I was inspired after making some blueberry preserves from a you pick day. I didn’t know how I was going to eat a whole jar, so I decided to make some ice cream to go with it. Vanilla is boring so lemon it was.
Its good on its on or great with blueberry topping too. Adding some melted white chocolate chips to the top too would be extra delicious. Enjoy!
- 2 tbsp lemon zest
- 1 cup fresh lemon zest
- 1 and 1/2 cup sugar
- 6 large eggs
- 3 cups half-and-half
- 1 vanilla bean with seeds removed
- In a saucepan, combine sugar and lemon zest to release some of the flavors. Then, whisk in lemon juice, 2 cups half-and-half, eggs and vanilla bean.
